Startups for News is an international competition that rewards the best startups bringing novel solutions to newsroom challenges. Each year, the Global Editors Network, in partnership with Journalism.co.uk, selects early-stage startups providing innovative products or services to media companies and accelerates their development through exposure, connections, and mentorship.
The programme has proven successful in identifying and promoting high-growth startups, many of which are now ubiquitous in the media industry. Some of our last competitors include Trint, Wibbitz, Spot.Im and Flourish.
The Global Editors Network has just launched the 7th edition of Startups for News. You can apply now here: www.bit.ly/sfnapply.
An international jury will select 16 startups, who will face off in online pitch battles. Afterwards, 8 finalists will be invited to the GEN Summit in Lisbon, where they will get to pitch in front of 800 editors-in-chief and media executives.
If you have any questions about the competition, please contact Catarina Falcao - cfalcao(a)globaleditorsnetwork.org-.
